Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease, Neurocognitive Disorders, Dementia & Brain Health

Joy Schmidt, Dane County Dementia Care Specialist, will join us to help give us a better understanding of what is dementia and Neurocognitive Disorder? What are the effects of Alzheimer’s disease? Whether you know someone with dementia or have concerns about changes in your memory as you age, this program will benefit you. Learn about memory loss and normal changes that come with age as well as factors that might increase risk for developing dementia. You will learn about the terminology and the diagnoses that are used, sometimes interchangeably. We will discuss the diseases that cause neurocognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, vascular disease, Parkinson’s and others. In this presentation, Joy will share the resources available as well as tips we can all follow to improve our odds for avoiding cognitive decline as we age. “Your presentation was not only highly informative, it was truly enjoyable. You are a five-star spokesperson for the ADRC,” wrote Earl Thayer, conference attendee. Additionally, you will  leave with concrete goals to help you live a brain healthy lifestyle.
